We will leave the Tasmanian Visitor Information Centre by bus to Myrtle Gully for a short stroll; right amongst the towering tree ferns beside the trail witnessed by Charles Darwin during his first failed attempt to ascend kunanyi.
We’ll then loop back to the car to continue up the mountain for another short walk out to the Octopus Tree; an enormous Eucalyptus tree with a leggy root system hugging a giant boulder. Yep, just like an octopus!
After another short drive to the Springs we will relax and enjoy a hot refreshment and snack. Back to the car for another short drive to the summit of kunanyi / Mt Wellington where we will take in the sights of Hobart and beyond, marvelling at the range of environments that the mountain offers from the coastal through to the alpine plateau. The tour will finish back at the Tasmanian Visitor Centre.
